Bangladeshi Nationals Flooding Southern Border


(San Antonio, TX)  --  The Border Patrol is reporting that hundreds of Bangladeshi nationals crossed the Rio Grande this year.  Only one was reported in fiscal 2017, followed by a spike of 668 in 2018.  The Bangladeshis are mostly adult men aged 18 to 35.  Instead of running from Border Patrol agents, they give themselves up and ask for asylum.  

A Homeland Security agent says international alien smuggling networks are at work.  He says a Bangladeshi national faces 16 charges of using a Monterrey hotel as a stash house and paying drivers to take the Bangladeshis to the U.S. border.
